Local Area Connection 3 full internet access

Local area connection 2 no internet access

VMWare Network Adapter VMNet1 no internet access


i have installed the latest drivers for the Realtek NICs (version 6.111 2009/9/22)

have attempted:

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /flushdns

i cannot figure out how to get either the VMWare NIC nor the Local Area Connection 2 to connect properly

any help with this?

That environment for your main PC works fine for me.

If you check, both of the 2 connections show a 169.254.xxx.xxx address. That basically says they can't get to the network.

Here is the output of my ipconfig and it all works.
I also included pictures of my VMware Workstation network settings.
